Heart defibrillators

Göteborgs Golf Klubb has four heart defibrillators at the facility, available at the following locations:

​-​Clubhouse: Inside the main entrance door, to the right
-Shortgame area: In the WC, locate in the engine hall building
-Hole 7: By the bench on the way up to hole 7 (available during April 15 – September 30)
-Hole 12: By the machine hall to the right of the 12th fairway (available during April 15 – September 30)

​​If someone suffers a cardiac arrest, it is crucial that the defibrillator can be used as quickly as possible, preferably within a few minutes. The device is portable and is used to restore a normal heart rhythm by delivering an electric shock to the heart. The defibrillator can be used by people without medical training and is easy to use thanks to spoken instructions.

Remember to always call 112 if you suspect someone has suffered a cardiac arrest and call for help if possible.
